What gives with the higher prices? Last year the limited pass (w/blackout dates) was $370, this year its $600. The anytime pass is now $750. The blackouts only apply to Loon this year, but it still seems like a pretty dramatic price increase for one year. I was talking to someone on the lift this year who worked for waterville and I asked him if the mountain was hurting financially due to the so-so winter. He replied, "some years the place makes buckets of money, some years it makes a few buckets less". So when I called the other day to ask about the price increase and the ticket office cited "operating expenses", I had a hard time believing it. Anyone know why the sudden jump?
